Roy and Georgette Frank of Elk Grove Village are Gold Star Parents. A designation they did not seek, nor want. Their only son Phil, was KIA in 2004 while serving our country in Iraq. This leg of their life's journey began the moment the Marine Corps Bereavement Detachment came to their door.
Roy and Georgette turned their heartache and hurt into help and hope.
The life of their son continues through them, The Heart Of A Marine Foundation, and the thousands of military and veterans served by both.
